I do not qualify for wic, but I can't believe the price of formula. I could afford it, but I am so glad bf worked out for me. It was HARD but we just hit 6 months end and I am so glad I am doing it. My sister has my nephew 18 days after dd while I was still struggling to bf pain free and since she did qualify for wic she never even tried to bf.
So my question, for those who receive WIC, would you have tried harder to bf if you had to pay for all of your formula?
I am not bashing anyone or WIC. It is a great program and I am glad it is there for babies who need it.
Also I work full time and pump so I fully understand that bf is a pain in the butt in some ways
